Thanks Dr. Wood.

The grasshopper and the ant is a favorite of mine taught to me by my parents who were from “The Greatest Generation”.

I’m not afraid to accept my failures as my fault which led to hard times for me in the past. I didn’t sit around “woe is me” and ask for handouts. I got back up and charged ahead to the best of my ability and now have a promising career once again.

Being willing to go to any length (legally and ethically of course) has paid off for me more than once. And yes, I have scrubbed toilets for minimum wage. My employers saw my work ethic and I was rewarded with raises and promotions most of the time.

My dad told me: “when the boss asks you to jump, you don’t ask why, you ask how high?”
